There seems to be diversity of < j in

is agreed, however, that tho oppro
priation bills will pass.

Cotton receipts nt all thc poi t1 are
falling behind the last year's receipts
every day in spite of the advance in
price during the past mont li. There
is every reason to anticipate a greatly
increased acreage this year, and, if a
big crop is made, look out for low
prices next fall.
The rich did not open their purses
to charity and benevolence last year
to quite the extent that they ?lid thc
year before. A contemporary that
that has kept thc account says that
the total of gifts to educational, char
itable and religious institutions last
year aggregated $77,307,167. an against
similar gifts of $12:1,888,71-12 ?luring
Tlie department of agriculture ut
Washington estimates tho newly seed
ed area of winter wheat at about 31,
000,000 acres, an increase of 5.10 per
cent upon the area estimated to have
been sown in the fall of I IHM. Thc
condition i-f winter wheat on P. e. 1
was 00.7 as compared with 80.7 in
1001, 117.1 in 1000 and a nine-year
average of 01.4.
Chief .lustief Henry Mciver died a?
Lis home iuCheraw last .Monday after
noon, after a long and tedious illness,
aged 70 years. For more than a quar
ter of a century he has ably served
this State upon thc Supreme Bench,
and his death is deeply deplored in
every part of South Carolina. As
citizen, as soldier, as statesman and
as jurist he had few equals in this
State, and his name will cover ono of
tho proudest pages of South Carolina
The Barnwell People directs atten
tion to the fact that Hugh S. Thom
son, now of New York, is tho only
survivor of the Democratic State offi
cials who were elected in 1876, "tho
only living representativo of the lead
ers of the greatest politioal conflict
and victory our State has ever known
or can ever know." It will bo remem
bered that Gov. Thompson was the
State Superintendent of Education
chosen in 187G, and he was elected
Governor in 1882.
The dispensary report for 1002, sayB
the Columbia State, indicates that
that institution has reaohed its maxi
mum percentage of profit under the
present system of management and
that no large inorease is to be expect
ed in the near future. The cities and
counties receive $443,000, while $123,
000 go to the State school fund, mak
ing the total profits $566,000. This
is about ten per cent, moro than in
1901. The dispensary system took
eight years to reach the point of profit
predioted for its first year by Ben
Tillman, and still lacks over $400,000
of attaining thc million dollar mark
he set for its subsequent years. In
this respect as in many others it has
been disappointing. Under the old
license system, when licenses were
granted only by tho cities and towns
and tho most of them at improperly
low rates, thc total revenue from the
sale of liquor was, we believe, $266,
000; so we have worried and fought
over the dispensary for ten years to
make a gain in re\ .nue whioh could
have been effected in one year without
disturbance by a simple act increasing
the minimum license fee. Thc dispen
sary has at last nominally gone out of
politics and has beeome an institution
of the State, to lr.-?as long as the ma
jority of the people shall be satisfied
with it, but the time is going to come
when they will not bo so satis
fied and, political excuses being with
drawn, will insist upon something
better. That something better is a
high license system under stringent
regulations. At a minimum fee of
$1,000 three-fourths of a million dol
lars could be collected in license with
out friction, without a speoial consta
bulary and without the co-operation of
thousands of blind tigers. Such a
system would enforce itself, for there
would be no need and no possibility of
an alliance between the legitimate and
Rock Mills Hems.
